- Other Info:
- Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines at this top wine estate since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. Together this husband and wife team is a phenomenon. Gary's parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 164 hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specialising in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. The Jordan slopes face North, South, East and West, with vineyards lying at differing altitudes from 160 to 410 meters above sea level. The vineyards benefit from their close proximity to both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans and enjoy a mild, Mediterranean climate with a maritime influence.
Intense lemon-lime flavours. A crisp fruitiness makes it a superb partner with food. Hints of spiciness add to its intrigue. This is a superb (and unusual) South African Riesling with a great deal of complexity. The Weisser Riesling was harvested from 25 year old (Geisenheim clone 239) unirrigated vineyards, situated on decomposed granite soils, 300m above sea level. The Riesling was harvested at 21.0°B and tank fermented at 15°C. Once the perfect balance between fruit and acidity was reached, the fermentation was stopped to retain a hint of natural residual sugar.
